High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I’m not talking about, say, “The Devil Wears Prada” (though I will never not argue that it’s one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Martin Scorsese’s short for men’s fragrance Bleu de Chanel, David Lynch’s campaign for Dior’s Lady Dior, or the Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de L’Homme ad created by “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky — as you can see, efforts of this ilk have seriously beautiful outcomes.

For the first time, there’s a documentary that examines the global impact of pedophilia from a sociocultural and historical perspective. “Are All Men Pedophiles?”, which has screened at various festivals this year, explores the question with the help of religious leaders, a psychologist, sexologist, neuroscientist and even a model scout. The film covers everything from the Lolita community (a Japanese fashion subculture oriented around looking a little girl),  to stories of child sexual abuse, to opinions about teen-adult sex. It endeavors to bring out the “other side of the story” by making a distinction between pedophilia (attraction to young children) and hebephilia (clinically defined as attraction to pubescent children). Dutch director Jan-Willem Breure wanted “to confront people with the issue” he was facing himself. The 23-year-old was inspired to make the film (which he funded it himself) when he found himself attracted to girls as young as 15. The girl featured on the film poster which asks, “Do you find me attractive?” is only 14. Keep reading »

There goes peace in the Middle East: Kanye West is reportedly getting ready to make a film there, tentatively titled — wait for it — “N****s on Camels.” Yes, West has dispatched several members of his team to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha Qatar to discuss getting the production rolling. According to The New York Observer, “In Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha all of the film initiatives are government controlled. A bidding war is going on between various government entities and private investors to fund the film. There’s pretty intense rivalry here between Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar. They all want to claim the film as their own and take credit for generating the publicity.” Keep reading »

If Annie Is All Grown Up, That Means We Are Too

I may be over 30, but that doesn’t make me too old to  hold out hope for a Daddy Warbucks style adoption, right? So what if I own the “Annie” commemorative plate series or can still quote dialogue from the film? “First the windows, then the floors … in case I drip.” Even I knew she wasn’t there to clean, but it was so endearing that she wanted to earn her keep. Though she was a poor orphan living in the depression, it seemed only natural to wish I were her. Especially after she becomes rich and gets to live in a mansion with an indoor pool and a turbaned body guard. “A child without courage is like a night without stars.” Words of wisdom from Punjab. I’ve been waiting for Aileen Quinn aka Annie to resurface. See what she looks like now after the jump. Keep reading »

Fifty-one-year-old Illinois woman, ArLynn Presser, has taken to telling herself how normal she is. Well, maybe not normal. But not so strange in comparison to other people. That’s what she learned this year. Her 2010 New Year’s resolution was to attempt to conquer her agoraphobia by endeavoring to meet all 335 of her Facebook friends in person. For one year, ArLynn told herself, “There are no safe spots, there are no dangerous spots. There are just places I’m going and people I’m seeing.” Her “Face to Facebook” project turned into a life-changing year that spanned 12 countries and 51 cities.  Her journey, in which she learned how to open a champagne bottle with a machete and sing opera, amongst other things, is captured in this new documentary.

The Final Countdown To “Arrested Development” The Movie

Why We Need It
Reasons for the return of "Arrested Development." Read More »

The final countdown to the “Arrested Development” film (and television season) is here! After five years sans Bluth, it’s good to know that my time spent practicing the chicken dance and asking strangers to “babysit me” wasn’t all for naught.  We only have to wait one more year before the filming begins. In the meantime, we can sink our teeth into an array of “Arrested Development” inspired ephemera like these imagined movie posters. I especially like the use of Gob in shadow. Very mysterious. If I had any artistic ability whatsoever, I would make one myself. I think it would be a mashup of Lucille Austero and Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.” [Buzzfeed]

Get Your Fortune Told By Miranda July

In honor of her upcoming film, “The Future” (which I predict I will love based on the trailer), Miranda July has created an interactive web oracle wherein she divines your future via a colorful spinning wheel. While she understands that we may be super skeptical of this new form of divination, she encourages us to remember that every form of fortune telling, including Tarot and astrology, even the Magic 8 Ball, had to start somewhere. I am always a sucker for a prediction, so I took a deep breath and clicked the spinning wheel’s button as instructed. It said something about me figuring out if I was oily like a rat. Hmmm. No, I don’t think so. Maybe this means I will wash my hair today? Yes, I believe a good shampooing is in my future. Wow! She’s amazing! I’ve opted to subscribe to her personalized divinations, which will now be sent directly to my inbox every Monday and Thursday. [The Future] Keep reading »

“Piranha 3DD” Is Coming For You

I did indeed see Jerry O’Connell get his manhood bitten off on the waters of Lake Havasu in “Piranha 3D.” Thank you to Amelia for convincing me to go. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As I watched this piece of highbrow film magic, I suspected that a sequel was probable. But is it possible to top the “peen scene” and if so, how? The Weinstein Company has confirmed that there is in fact a sequel on the way with the working title of “Piranha 3DD.” Get it? Like boobies! The killer fish will resurface at summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Maybe the piranhas have evolved and they only eat silicone now. The possibilities are endless.
